If you have an i7-920 pc already, is there any specific reason you need to upgrade?

Also, with both 1156 and AM3 dead and to be replaced, now isn't exactly the best time to get a new PC.

Also, be aware that many Dell PC parts are proprietary (not to mention low quality) so don't expect to be able to import much to a new build.
